The Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra is celebrating over 50 years of great music. Recently
honored as "Community Orchestra of the Year" by the Illinois Council of
Orchestras, it continues to reach new heights of excellence.
The many concerts presented throughout the year feature prominent soloists and major
symphonic works. The Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra is comprised of professionals and
accomplished community musicians, and is an Illinois not-for-profit corporation.
Concert goers from Elmhurst and the surrounding communities are treated to an exceptional
cultural experience as they hear timeless music minutes from home.
"An orchestra exists not only to celebrate music of the past, but also to serve
as a mirror for its own time and culture. I am pleased that our audience has been
so receptive to the mix of classical masterpieces and fine newer works that we present
— Stephen Alltop, Music Director
